The Henry Capitant Law review


Henri capitant 1 The Foundation is working with the Henri Capitant Association, a public service association founded in 1935, to create a continental law review whose special characteristics are its electronic and paper format, its open access and its English-French bilingualism.

This review is called the Henry Capitant Law Review (HCLJ), which appears biannually and is designed for jurists from all occupational groups (students, academics, legal professionals) and all legal traditions. Henri Capitant Law Review (HCLR).

It is essentially theme-based: each issue focuses on a specific theme of private or public law chosen because of its relevance and/or its special importance. On each of these chosen topics, scholarly articles are selected and also excerpts from notable legislation or judicial decisions in French law as well as foreign law. The published articles are both new and the result of copying made with the agreement of the publishers who are the assignees of the copyright. Particular attention is paid to the publication of “founders” articles, that is to say the texts that represent the continental tradition of excellence that are translated for the widest possible dissemination. The publishers’ commitment or support for this action is important because they allow free access to the texts. .

L’engagement des éditeurs au soutien de cette action est important parce qu’il permet l’accès aux textes gratuitement.

The journal is managed by a committee of three “circles” of contributors: a circle of readers, a circle of publishers and a circle of partners.

The Foundation supports this initiative by helping to finance the English translation of the journal and promotes its reputation by assuring international distribution.
